1. The Fallen Timbers Battle Monument is Mad!
What a schizophrenic monument! Manifest Destiny decreed the White Settlers would triumph over the Beringian immigrants ("Indians") and they did. All things considered, every battle has winners and losers. Are we to expect battle monuments across our God-given nation that tells "both sides" of the story? What confusion!
The Fallen Timbers Battle Monument is mad! One side praises the White Settlers, another side memorializes the massacre of White Settlers, another side praises Indians who murdered the settlers and another side celebrates Pioneers who were able to move onward in peace (thanks to peace through strength).
